Dear Friend and Colleague,

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my great pleasure to invite you to participate in the International Academy of Cardiology, 17th WORLD CONGRESS ON HEART DISEASE, Annual Scientific Sessions 2012, Toronto, ON, Canada, July 27-30, 2012.

The Congress will provide the opportunity for a comprehensive overview of the latest research developments in cardiovascular medicine, primarily in the areas of molecular biology, coronary artery disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias and cardiac surgery.

Plans for this meeting are progressing extremely well. Many distinguished cardiologists and scientists have agreed to join the faculty participating in this Congress. Papers will be presented in the form of plenary sessions, symposia and posters, and will include superb scientific material originating from numerous laboratories around the globe, assuring that the meeting will be a major scientific event.

Program areas will range from clinical pathophysiology to evaluation and stratification techniques and molecular and cellular biology, including neurohumoral, immunological and genetic studies. We will discuss new and innovative diagnostic methods, prevention and treatment of heart disease, and prognostic algorithms. Integrated into the program will be an update on the latest major clinical trials.

We hope that you will participate in this Congress and submit for presentation your most recent scientific work in the rapidly evolving field of cardiovascular disease.

Your interaction with your colleagues from many different countries will stimulate a creative exchange of ideas and will be personally rewarding. We look forward to your active participation in the 17th WORLD CONGRESS ON HEART DISEASE and to welcoming you to the beautiful city of Toronto in July.

Yours sincerely,

Asher Kimchi, MD
